Description

Comprising smooth, grey, Mount Rosea-like rock, the top, only, of this outcrop is visible from Halls Gap-Dunkeld Road halfway up hill between Pastoral Buttress and Diving-board Rocks, and 50m north of those cliffs. Park on road directly below Rock of Ages. A pleasant, 20-minute stroll across paddocks and then through open woodland leads to cliff.

Cliff faces west.

Excellent, technical climbing. From left toe of face, climb ramp up right to left vertical line. Up this.

Much harder than it looks, hard to pro- tect, and in need of a clean. Line on right side of face. From ledge with tree, climb groove to overhang. Step up left, then right above overhang. Up until easier rock is attained.
